Let me start this off by informing you this was made for my 21 Day Sugar Detox, so this isn’t your typical sugary coffee cake. This APPLE SPICE COFFEE CAKE was made with a sugar detox in mind. Now, let’s get on with it

For many, Mothers Day means 1 day of sweets or some other treat, but for me it means my birthday is days away.  This year is slightly different from the rest as I’ve decided to partake in another round of the 21 Day Sugar Detox.  The detox happens during Mothers Day, my birthday and ends just after Memorial Day weekend. UGH!  In preparation I started toying around with making some sort of dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth and came up with this Apple Spice Coffee Cake.

    I made this tonight and it is very tasty! I was wondering though, is it supposed to be very moist? Almost so that you would think it wasn’t finished cooking? I left it in a few minutes longer and the knife came out clean but it’s just so moist.

  2. says

    I’ve had it come out very moist and very dry, but preferably it should be moist. If you don’t like that, you could add just a teeny tiny bit (approx 1 tsp.) coconut flour to absorb the moisture. Glad you liked it :)

      You can always try using another flour, but I find other nut flours don’t work as well. Coconut absorbs lots of the excess moisture.
      Do you use gluten-free like Bobs Red Mill?

      Yes, you can use almond milk instead of coconut.

    • says

      Hmmmm I’m not sure what the correct amounts would be. I use extra eggs for the moisture (the coconut flour soaks up) and a added binding agent. Try using a 3/4c. GF flour and maybe cut the eggs down to 4-5.
      Now I’m intrigued and will try tonight :)
      I’ll let you know.
      Let me know if you attempt it too.
